Research Interests

My research explores the social-psychological factors that promote or undermine cooperation among individuals and groups.

Research topics that I am currently exploring include:

  • Social influence in prosocial outcomes
  • Effects of cooperation on health outcomes
  • Determinants of collective action and inaction
  • Building trust among people in different levels of a social hierarchy
  • The effects of digital technology and new media on civic participation and engagement
